While NeNe Leakes feuds with the other stars of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” it looks like she may have yet another feud brewing outside of the hit reality show.
Talk show queen Wendy Williams has taken multiple jabs at NeNe in the past, and it’s one of the reasons NeNe refuses to go back on her show.
Interestingly enough, sources claim the feud got even more intense when both ladies attended The Ultimate Women’s Expo at Georgia World Congress Center a couple of days ago.
Daily Mail writes:
On Sunday, when Williams and her entourage arrived at the Georgia World Congress Center they realized her dressing room was right next to Leakes. Her husband/manager Kevin Hunter demanded the event organizers move Leakes’ dressing room, a source close to the expo told Daily Mail Online.
‘Kevin was adamant that he wanted his wife nowhere near NeNe! He told them to move her as far away as possible,’ the source revealed.
Williams took the stage at 1pm to do a keynote address to the thousands in attendance and talked about ‘ten rules every woman should live by.’
She was followed on stage by Leakes at 1:45pm, who addressed the screaming fans by saying: ‘I’m your home girl. I live my life as an open book and I’m happy I don’t need ten rules to live by!’
That set Williams’ husband off!
According to the eyewitness, Kevin pushed through the curtains and stormed the stage and was cursing at the top of his lungs. ‘He kept yelling ‘get her m*********ing ass off the stage. We don’t f*** with her! Wendy don’t f*** with her. Cut that b****’s mic off!” the source recalled.
As Hunter began to storm up the stage steps, Leakes best friend Diana Gowins jumped up to confront him. Gowins, who has been featured on both Real Housewives of Atlanta and Leakes’ wedding special I Dream of NeNe, yelled back at him: ‘What the hell is your problem? If you have a problem with NeNe, take it up with me!’
The two stood there and exchanges verbal spars while Leakes continued with her presentation, completely unaware of the chaos ensuing on the side of the stage she insists.
The publication claims Kevin got so heated from his exchange with Diana that he stormed off to where Wendy was signing copies of her book, “Ask Wendy: Straight-Up Advice for All the Drama in Your Life,” and made Wendy cut it short. The crowd booed as a result.
While this report hasn’t been confirmed, NeNe did tell Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live,” that a ruckus did go down backstage while she on the stage, and Wendy’s husband Kevin has been accused of cutting up behind the scenes before.
